Tides and Wind
On Saturday, April 6th, high tide will be 4.5
feet at 5:03 a.m. PST, low tide will be -0.2 feet at 12:32 pm PST,
and the tide will be high again at 4.1 feet at 7:02 pm PST. This
means that Saturday races run before 12:32 pm will be against the
tide as it goes out, and those run after 12:32 pm will be with the
tide as it comes back in.
Pacific Daylight Savings Time (PDT) begins on
On Sunday, high tide will be 4.7 feet at 7:01
am PDT, low tide will be -0.3 feet at 2:10 pm PDT, and the tide
will be high again at 4.3 feet at 8:26 pm PDT. This means that Sunday
races run before 2:10 pm PDT will be against the tide as it goes
out, and those run after 2:10 pm PDT will be with the tide as it
comes back in.
Given prevailing wind patterns at the Crown
Point Shores course, outgoing tides and low tides generally favor
lanes 1 and 2, while incoming tides generally favor the higher numbered
lanes, unless a cross-headwind is blowing from lane 1 toward lane
7, in which case the effects are somewhat off-setting.
